Way OF ST. JAMES Rapperswil-Einsiedeln
The Constance section of the Way of St. James leads from Rapperswil-Jona over the restored wooden bridge over Lake Zurich to Hurden. In Hurden the route runs along the lake and the railway line until Pfäffikon followed by a decidedly steep ascent over Luegeten to the Etzel mountain pass with St. Meinrad's Chapel. From here you have a superb view of Lake Sihl. The descent leads across the devil's bridge through the Schwantenau moorland to Lake Sihl and back to Einsiedeln. Pilgrims looking for reasonably priced and comfortable accommodation cannot go far wrong if they stay at the pilgrim hostel.
